"Giving the Chance to Shine"

Year 5 and 6 Open Morning!

On Thursday we welcomed Year 5 and 6 family members into our school for the morning, to work with their child and their child’s friends on a range of activities linked to their current topic ‘Blood Heart’.

          

There were six activities that parents and family could get involved in throughout the morning:

Activity 1 – Join Mrs Thomas and Mr Bailey in the library to try your hand at some poetry skills linked to the heart.

Activity 2 – Heart Start – Learn an essential life skill in the lower hall with Mrs Callaghan and Miss Sharp. Will you know what to do in an emergency?

Activity 3 – How good are you at Scrabble? What is the largest word you can make in our Countdown Challenge? Join Miss Norris upstairs to take these spelling challenges.

Activity 4 -Make your way across the corridor to Class 2 with Miss Mc Grath and Miss Tunney to make a sandwich containing the parts of the heart. Can you tell your left atrium from your aorta?

Activity 5 – Get your pulse racing in the top hall with Mrs Stubbs and Miss Hinman to see how exercise can affect your pulse.

Activity 6 – Use your Maths skills with Mrs Anderson to make a graph to show the changes in your heart rate after exercise.

We had thirty family members with us for the morning and received really positive feedback in the questionnaires received.

100% said they had enjoyed the morning. When asked why replied:

“Totally enjoyed working with XXXX.”

“It shows the children you can see what they do.”

“Really enjoyed myself. Loved interacting with XXXX and his class friends.”

“Spending time with my child and seeing what they do in school.”

“Was great to come in and work alongside XXXX and her friends. Really enjoyed it.”

“Good fun in all stations.”

When asked what they enjoyed and why?

“Graph and exercise.”

“The heart poem – love being creative!”

“Sandwich – making it with XXXX.”

“Love the graph activity and making a sandwich. They were all great!”

“Exercise – good fun! Poetry – making up raps and rhymes.”

Our Open Mornings are always a great success and usually we have over forty parents and family members attending. We asked our parents this time how we could improve them. They replied:

“They are excellent – nothing needs improving.”

“To make it easier for parents with younger siblings.”

“A full open day – spend a full day in school and have lunch.”

“Have them more frequently.”

“Tea and coffee at the start and not at the end.”

We also asked our parents what they thought parents gained from coming to the event. They responded:

“Confidence to work with their child.”

“Gives them some chill time.”

“One to one time with your child and also keeping up-to-date with what your child is learning.”

“Get to see what they are getting up to.”

“We get to learn and see what they’re up to and helps with homework.”
